> Description 
Hawaii Five-O centers around a fictional state police force of the same name in honor of Hawaii's status as the Fiftieth State led by former United States Navy Officer Steve McGarrett, appointed by Hawaii Governor Paul Jameson. McGarrett was assisted by Danny Williams and a cadre of elite detectives most notably Chin Ho Kelly and Honolulu Police Department Officer Duke Lukela. The police unit is entirely fictional and ironically, Hawaii is the only state without any statewide police force at all.

For twelve seasons, McGarrett and his team hounded criminals and mob syndicates plaguing the Hawaiian Islands. With the aide of District Attorney and later Hawaii Attorney General John Manicote, McGarrett was successful in sending most of his enemies to prison. One such mob syndicate was led by crime family patriarch Honore Vachon, a character introduced in the fifth season. Blaming McGarrett for the death of his son, Vachon swore vengeance using all the resources available to him. Most episodes of Hawaii Five-O ended with the arrest of criminals with McGarrett's catch phrase to Williams, "Book 'em, Danno!"

In many episodes, McGarrett was drawn into the world of international espionage and national intelligence. McGarrett's archnemesis on Hawaii Five-O was an intelligence officer of the People's Republic of China, Wo Fat. The Communist rogue agent was played by Khigh Dheigh.
